Based in Manhattan, JDS Development Group currently manages more than seven million square feet of properties at various stages of development. In New York, JDS properties include the record-setting Walker Tower in Chelsea. Farther uptown in Midtown West, Stella Tower – another JDS property with an Art Deco façade similar to that of the Walker Tower – houses 51 residences. Of course the project JDS is most famous for is the insanely tall (and skinny) 111 West 57th street.
From the site: "Walker and Stella Towers in particular celebrate the work of Ralph Walker, one of New York City’s most successful and prolific architects who is often credited for creating the initial shape of today’s impressive Manhattan skyline. Once called “the only other honest architect” by his colleague and American visionary Frank Lloyd Wright, Walker is celebrated by JDS Development Group, a firm committed to preserving and enhancing the effects of Walker’s genius in a city that owes much of its modern architectural appeal to his lengthy career."
More insane luxury condos to come. At least they are nice to look at.
